Potted plant decoration - Flowerman


Flowerman - As always, he is not the cutest or the prettiest one, but certainly my favorite! He is so weirdly cute that he makes me smile every time I look at him. He reminds me of some old RPG games, where he would be one of the easiest, lame enemies You fight when You are level 1 :)




Materials:


  • yellow, green, blue or pink yarn ( I use the yarn which gauge is 24.0 to 30.0 sts = 4 inches )
  • hook 3 mm
  • white sheet of foam (mine is 1 mm thick) for eyes
  • 2 black beads ( 4 mm would be best)
  • clothes pin - the best would be the smaller version - 3 cm 
  • hot glue gun
  • cotton or something else You will use as filament



Pattern:

From the white foam cut two circles for the eyes. If You don't like the edges of Your foam, You can use a nail file to make them better.
Sew them to the head with the bead in the center.
